JOIN IN Local Sport and get your club involved in the Olympic and Paralympic Legacy

May 30, 2012

Join In is a fantastic idea to encourage the nation to get involved in the Olympic and Paralympic Games.  We know that many sports clubs are keen to increase their active membership and want to take advantage of the spotlight which will fall on sport this summer.

Join In Local Sport is a unique opportunity to do this!

Many people already give up their time for sport and Join in Local Sport is about helping Sports Clubs from across Cumbria and the UK seize on this unique opportunity.

On 18/19 August (the weekend between the Olympics and Paralympics), sports clubs will be encouraged to put on events and activities, such as a drive for more helpers, demonstrations, festivals, makeover projects or whatever they decide and the public will be asked to turn up and support them.  Whether clubs want to sign more volunteers, supporters or playing members, Join In will try to help you.

A website has been developed providing a place for you to register your club, and advertise your event, there is also practical advice to help you make the most of the weekend.

Before and during the Games time, the Join In Local Sport team will use every marketing and social media technique to raise awareness of the Join In weekend and help you get the support for your events and your club.

You can get involved by simply visit and registering your club.
